Hotter Handbags - Capri Bag

Ever since I've bought my BritMums Live! 2013 ticket, I've been hunting for an outfit. Normally you'll buy clothes first, then the accessories, but well, since it's not easy for me to find an outfit, I went and shopped for accessories first.. for the sake of buying something and ticking it off the list *cough*

I've worked with Hotter shoes on several occasions and have loved their shoes, but before I got to shoes, I had a look at their accessories as well and guess what? They do a good range of leather handbags and purses too!

The ever so lovely PR had offered me a handbag to review and use to hold my necessities (finally nothing babies related in it! Well okay, I'll carry their pictures but that's it!) during the BritMums Live! event.

As I haven't chosen my outfit yet, I decided to go for something neutral that will fit most smart casual outfits - Capri Bag in Satin Nickle (£55.00). It's got this lovely shimmer on the leather with a shiny smart looking clasp, and the colour is a great alternative to the common beige, brown and black. The chain is longer than I thought (I was expecting a short under arm length, my mistake for not looking at the dimensions provided) and the bag just reached my hip. Not a problem at all, I'll still be able to find something nice that goes well with it! 

As expected from Hotter, the quality and workmanship is fantastic, and the leather is gorgeously soft. I'll be taking my lovely bag to the shops one of these weekends and hopefully I can find something nice to wear very soon, to cross them out of my to do list! Hotter accessories are available online and in stores.
